Cleanwatts arrives in Asia, announcing partnership with Macnica
In the wake of ambitious Net Zero commitments recently made by the Japanese government, both companies are experiencing an increase in demand for sophisticated real time energy management and energy efficiency systems.
Specifically, Macnica will provide to commercial and industrial enterprises the full range of products from Cleanwatts' Kisense® platform, including real time management of electricity, gas, water and CO2 emissions from individual discrete assets to complex portfolios of assets across multiple locations. In parallel, Macnica will also engage independent power producers and renewable energy source operators through Kiplo®, Cleanwatts' virtual power plant (VPP) designed to provide aggregation services, grid-level balancing and wholesale energy trading in support of local energy communities and smart city projects.
Given the breadth of Cleanwatts technological capabilities, Macnica is now well positioned to address a range of new and rapidly emerging market needs triggered by the ongoing transition towards decentralized generation, storage and consumption of clean energy.
"We are deeply excited about entering this partnership with Macnica. Asia represents an important piece of the global energy transition challenge and we are honored that Macnica have chosen to partner with Cleanwatts to help address the rapidly emerging regional needs for energy decarbonization"
The first Cleanwatts service to be deployed under the partnership will be Kisense® Buildings, a product that allows companies in diverse sectors to achieve significant operational cost savings and marked reductions in CO2 emissions. Consolidated data from Cleanwatts' clients show a range of benefits derived from the deployment of Kisense® Buildings:
